PRELIMINARY PROGRAM

SUMMER SCHOOL 2021 – 2nd ONLINE EDITION
RESILIENCE & CREATIVITY

The Mosaic-HEC Montréal team, in collaboration with the University of Barcelona and their partners, will offer, from June 28 to July 9, 2021, a new exceptional online edition of the Summer School on the theme “RESILIENCE & CREATIVITY”, following the success of the online edition organized in 2020.

The exceptional crisis that our societies are going through makes it more necessary than ever for regions, companies, organizations and individuals to reinvent themselves. The Mosaic team and its partners have designed an original program around the ability of ecosystems to react to crises, to be agile, to regenerate themselves, and to implement new forms of value creation. A particular focus will be on how the cities of Montreal and Barcelona, hard hit by the crisis, are implementing creative solutions in a wide variety of sectors (health, mobility, arts and culture, tourism).

The constraints due to the crisis also allow the Summer School to reinvent itself as an online edition that acts as a rallying point for Mosaic’s international network of partners. The Summer School will thus bring a valuable international dimension by connecting and involving speakers from Strasbourg, Bangkok, Tokyo, Lille, Rio, Bangalore, Vilnius, Grenoble, and more! The new edition will act as a magnet for new ideas and perspectives.

Join us to co-create an enriching, human, inspiring and collaborative experience!
